I must be a slow learner but I think I finally have figured out how to become more successful.
For years, I have played $12 a night, a $2 GPP and either a $10 50/50 or H2H. This was a disaster.
For the most part, I put up decent numbers on a nightly basis but rarely won (40-45% in cash games, alot of minimum cash in GPPS). That’s a recipe for losing money fast! The most frustrating thing is that when I had a good cash game night, I was only winning $8 a night.
One night, I decided to enter a 10 man and had a good night and ended up winning $45. A light bulb clicked and I realized how dumb I have been for 4 years! My percentage of cashing is probably the same in cash games, except I win $17 to $35 bucks on a winning night instead of $8. That offsets the losing nights a lot better! Throw in some decent GPP nights here and there and all of a sudden I am finding some success.
I’m sure most people are like DUH, but thought I would share in case someone is stuck in a rut like I was.
